Womanity was set to restart its activities in March 2022, when secondary schools for girls were due to reopen, but to the shock of the entire world, this decision was reversed at the very last-minute preventing us again from offering our services to students.

However, driven by our strong determination to continue to support girls´education in Afghanistan, we did not give up and we started to investigate other avenues to continue our work. We identified in the TVET-A authority a potential strong partner to implement our program.

TVET-A is an independent authority that supervises vocational training institutes for boys and girls in grade 13th and 14th across Afghanistan. Among their institutes, there is a technological centre in Kabul that offers classes in computer literacy, graphic design and coding. After several weeks of negotiation, we identified ways to complement their offer and support girls´ education, we also negotiated to host classes online for them while we wait that the centre is given authorisation to open for girls. More than 100 students expressed interest in joining our classes.

We are currently signing a Memorandum of Understanding to hopefully start activities by the end of June.

Meanwhile we expanded our university scholarship program for student in computer science in Salam University and identified 20 new students to join our current 11 scholarship holders and receive our financial support. 

In the first months of the year, we also support 300 girls to prepare for the Kankoor exam, granting them financial support to attend tutoring classes in a private well-known institute (the DEWA center).
